about us


We set up Likely Story in 2005 and our first short film together, THE OTHER MAN, starring BAFTA-winner Anna Maxwell Martin, won the UKFC/Kodak short film prize at the Edinburgh Film Festival 2006.

Our first feature film, WRECKERS, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy, premiered at the London International Film Festival October 2011, where Dictynna Hood was nominated for best British debut as director. WRECKERS’ US festival premiere was at Palm Springs International Film Festival in January 2012. WRECKERS was released in the UK January 2012, and won the Perspectives award at Moscow IFF, screening on BBC1 2012, with cinema release in Japan and South Korea 2014.
